It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Admittedly, winter has never been my favorite season. This is mostly due to my cold allergy (literal cold allergy- I get rashes from the cold, yikes!) but this year I was, for once, looking forward to the frosty but cozy season. Most of my Second Life friends also fully decked the Flickr halls with winterry captures, naturally making me even more excited for the holiday season.

Tannenbaum opened her holiday market again for the year of 2016, bringing you a selection of high quality, wonderous winter goodies. 22769 ~ [bauwerk] released a lovely decor set for all your cozy “landhaus” needs. They also released a bunch of ornaments in a gacha set, with a silver and gold tree topper as a rare prize. I enlarged the topper and placed it next to my pre-decorated tree for you to see, which reminded me that there are always more ways to use decorations creatively in Second Life.

Sn@tch has also been on top of their winter game, releasing some incredibly fabulous outfit for all your holiday needs. This sweater dress with glittering stars is one of my favorite new releases so far. It’s absolutely adorable and incredibly cozy too. If you would like to keep up with the holiday releases for Sn@tch, I highly recommend you to follow Ivey via Flickr or her store blog. Sn@tch releases new items twice a week with occasional freebies to keep an eye out for as well.

Wishing you all a wonderful winter! ♥

It has been a while since I have shared some tuneage on this blog and I figured it was about time to do so again. So, hereby, I would like to present to you my Sunday jam: Love For Everyone by courtship.

Wondering if you will be mine
If so, if so
Lay your body next to mine
There’s no need to get in line”

Catwa Catya Bento Head

Click to enlarge

Project Bento is an extension to the standard Second Life avatar which makes it possible to customize your mesh heads, similar to shaping your standard Second Life facial features in the past. You can read more about Bento in this short forum post by Linden Lab.

Before purchasing your first Bento head, please consider the following:

  • The head will only be visible on a Bento viewer. You can download the Bento beta viewer via the Alternative Viewer wiki page.
  • Project Bento is currently still in its beta testing phase, meaning that there will be bugs and glitches. Creators will do their absolute best to fix any bugs on their side. However, please remember that they will be unable to fix Second Life bugs.

Catwa – Catya Bento Head

Catwa recently released her first Bento head named Catya. Listed below are a few details regarding the head that I have not discussed in my video:

  • Expressions: Catya comes with 9 standard expressions. The expressions are currently only compatible with the default shape:

catya-expressions

  • HUDs: The pack includes an Animations and Master HUD. The last one of which is a replacement of the previous Main HUD.

catya-huds

  • Price: Catya costs 5000 L$ and comes with the following:
    – Alpha layers
    – Various gestures
    – Mesh head (with teeth)
    – Mesh head (without teeth)
    – Animations and Master HUD
    – Info & Updates Log
    – Rigged eyes
    Remember to try a DEMO before purchasing the head.
  • Troubleshooting: Join the in-world group called CATWA HEAD Friends for live chat support. Paste the following link into your local chat and click to join: secondlife:///app/group/29c5ca14-7e13-fdf0-c531-2507844a1eef/about

For more information, take a look at Catwa’s blog and YouTube channel. Both contain helpful information, tips and tricks!

Catya lookbook video

For my video on Catya, I displayed three different looks to show various ways of styling and shaping the head. You can find the custom shapes that I have used for these looks on my Marketplace.
